According to Twitter they dropped 'nearer My God' from the set list in Icheon and Alex M sang with Alessandro on 'Wayfaring Stranger' - hopefully just a head cold :D

Waiting for the bullet train from Daejeon to Incheon airport and looking back on the tour which was very successful in all respects. Great performances by Libera. Impressive venues. Very well attended by appreciative audiences. Well organised.
There isn’t much more to say about the specifics as it was exactly the same program as in the Philippines – with the replacement of “Bayan Ko” by the unofficial Korean national anthem “Arirang” as encore. “Nearer my God” was not bumped by “Usahay” (as in Manila) but was dropped from the last two concerts, I think because of voice problems which I hope are only temporary. This exquisite a capella piece demands perfection. There were a few variations in solo performances with Gabe doing the “salves” in the last concert (and done beautifully I should add). Alex M joined Alessandro for “Wayfaring Stranger” in the 3rd and 4th concerts and Lucas and Ciaran joined Merlin for “Stay with Me” in the last. Henry C-H delivered the speech usually done by Ben B (absent from this tour) with great confidence and clarity. Korean heart sign delivered by Alex G and Leo at the end of the concert was a big hit with the audience.
One singer (who shall remain nameless) forgot his white shoes in London and performed all the concerts in his stocking feet - which was probably a Libera “first”.
Thanks to all for yet another wonderful series of concerts.
Next stop Romsey. Don't miss it.

Thanks John :)
A little correction: Alex M joined Alessandro on Wayfaring Stranger and sung with him on Libera for the 3rd concert.
On the 4th it was Lucas that joined Alessandro on both these songs :wink:

Libera Japan posted links to Libera's TV performances--including a shortened version of Arirang, and a funny singing contest!

Watch my video of their arrival for the signature session at the Daejeon concert.
You will be surprise to see how many of them have dropped the shoes to be relax during the signatures :wink:

Oh and I've modified the group photo for those who are interested in knowing the names of the current choristers (Libera Passion's members page is much more comprehensive of course).

As always, it looks like the boys had a great time. One of these days, what with all the football and jungle-gyming going on, somebody is going to unexpectedly come on stage in a cast. :roll: Actually, I'm surprised it hasn't happened by now. :lol:
